The City’s landfill operating contractor is experiencing staff shortages related to COVID-19. As a result, the Sudbury Landfill Reuse Store will be closed Saturday January 22nd and Saturday January 29th, 2022 in order to prioritize primary landfill operations. Landfill sites remain open with limited capacity. Residents should be prepared for longer than usual wait times. The City has set up a live camera at the Sudbury landfill site so that residents can see how busy it is before they make the trip. The live feed is available at
